If this series didn’t remind you of Hyouka and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya before, you would be lying to yourself if you can still say that after episode three. What is the focus of episode three? Our female lead is very excited about being the part of a club and our unenthusiastic is recruited in to help. Recruiting members that aren’t Yuuta proves to be futile as the club deals with occult magic that would scare off most high school students. Luckily, Kumin comes back as the only member of the napping club and decides that the two clubs can combine in order to try to get the minimum number of people to establish a new club. There is a five member minimum though, so Rikka recruits her friend from the middle school who is just as wild as she is. Dekomori is the girl with ridiculous twin tails that knows Rikka as master. With these four members, the staff will not approve of their group as a club, but will permit them to meet in a remote room if the students agree to clean it. Even with everyone else starting to feel the club spirit, Yuuta continues to deny any interest in becoming a permanent member. Things get interesting when the idol of the class approaches Yuuta with interest in the Black Magic/Napping Club. Thus, a curveball is thrown into the all too obvious romance in our series.
Current Opinion of the Show:
I am getting even more interested in this story. We are finally starting to get a greater volume of characters and that is adding some nice elements to the story. I have nothing against Nibutani, but I really like Rikka and my shipping heart might not be able to take too much tension in this story. I believe that we are starting to get to the point where people will decide whether or not they should stick with this series and I will let you guys know that, pending anything ridiculous, I plan on sticking with Chuunibyou. I am looking forward to see Nibutani’s reason for joining the club.
